    I bought the cnc intake manifold from whats his nuts, and since it is straight, i have interference with the bolt that guides the clutch cable. So i have my carb slightly askew. Anyone know how to remedy this problem?

    Take out the guide and file down the threads abit so it sits down lower and you should be good.

    I got mine in the mail yesterday, the web site says that in order for this intake to work you have to remove that bolt and cut a quarter inch off of it then replace it, put the bolt in a vice and try to cut it straight and you will be fine, my question is how does it run with the carb not level, i am wondering if i have to level out my motor so the float doesnt stick as the stock intake is bent slight over 90 degrees to help level out the carb. Good luck, and whats his nuts has very good custumer service and would be glad to help you if you need it, I beleive his name is Justin!!!

    I have been reduced to being referred to as "what's his nuts" on a public forum with over 12,000 members...awesome...laff

    Yes, as miraculous as it may seem, I guess I'm going to have to take out the time to make an installation guide for my CNC machined intake. Please don't ask me to write a guide on how to chew gum...I will surely end up in the puzzle factory.

    Wes,

    I made the first intake just before Christmas last year. I needed it for the bike shown below.

    The engine was mounted fairly level, so the orginal intake would have positioned the carb, angled down.

    Your engine does not have to be perfectly level in order to use the intake I make. It's usually fairly easy to level out the engine a little so that the carb isn't angled way up.

    The "O"-ring seals the connection between the carb and intake, which makes for a good idle...no more vacuum leaks.

    The short, straight through, design is far superior for obvious reasons.

    Jim

    Its on, just waiting for the RTV to set up a little more, I cut the bolt down a quarter inch and it went right back in with out cross threading, i turned my pit cock on and pushed the plunger to see if the float was working and everything works just fine, the float stoped the flow of fuel!!! Ill give it a few more minutes before i fire it up!!!
